Some advice I got
Of course we know not to “look for love”. But after me and my ex broke up, I thought about past crushes I had. I thought about, well I knew them from high school or work, we used to laugh and stuff. I wonder if something could spark from there.
A friend told me “you’re scared of new things.” And she is completely right. “Don’t focus on making something with someone you already know. That’ll lead to bad patterns you just escaped. Find someone who doesn’t know of your past or how insecure and timid you once were. I don’t care if he’s from a different state, start a fresh friendship with someone new where you’ll have a lot more stories to talk about and entertain each other with. Stop holding on to the old, embrace the new that’s to come. Start fresh.”
I’m ready for new.
